An Early Father and Blogging with A Purpose Award

Hi everyone! I've been working on some cards that I'm going to bring to a local shop - hopefully to sell (!) Some of those I'm bringing are these Father's Day cards. I'm sure you've seen these fun origami shirts before - this year I added some cute ties from Hero Arts to mine. You can see instructions for the shirt as well as some fun variations in the Try a New Technique forum on Split Coast here.

The Dad and dots stamp is from the new Verve Visual Set called Father Figure. I also used a cuttlebug folder on the panal. The cardstock is Kraft.

The Father definition stamp is by Paper Inspirations and I used another Cuttlebug panel on the Caramel card base for this set of cards. The panels are Naturals Ivory, Certainly Celery and Basic Black. The Hero Arts ties come in a set of 3 and each one has a different pattern on it. I just stamped them in black on colored card stock and matched each one up to the dp that I used for the shirts. I think these little shirts are just so cute!

I just found out today that Deb gave me this very nice award.

Thanks to all of you for the comments that you leave here that always lift my spirits and the inspiration that you provide each and every day!

I'm passing this award onto:

LeAnne and Beverly

Please check out their inspiring blogs and leave them a comment on something you like there!

Now I have to go finish some origami flower place name cards that I'll be using on my table for Mother's Day Sunday. I'll post them as soon as I finish them so check back soon!!

Thought for the day from Poor Richard's Almanac by Ben Franklin: "What you would seem to be, be really."

Have a great night - thanks for stopping by!
